WCQ: Nigeria must shut out Cape Verde – Okoye

Super Eagles no 1 goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye, has opined that stopping Cape Verde from scoring in Lagos on Tuesday will be the team’s strategy to advance to the Final Round of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Africa qualifiers.

The huge goalie is confident that the Super Eagles would overcome Cape Verde at the Teslim Balogun Stadium with the superior firepower on parade, CompleteSports writes.

“We will go all out to beat Cape Verde clearly and qualify, but we shall do everything possible to shut them from our goal. We know we just need a point to qualify. but we are not planning to draw this game, we want the three points and clean sheet,” he said.

“Having beaten them in their home ground in the first leg, we know they will be coming for a revenge, but we shall overpower them and win the maximum points. We know how they play and we know that any slip up will be disastrous to our World Cup quest.

“We must aside scoring goals, also ensure that we stop them from scoring. The maximum points are more important than me keeping clean sheet. Nigerians should just believe in us and give us the maximum support and we shall deliver.”

The Sparta Rotterdam goalie who has sealed a deal to join Watford FC in January 2022 added that the Eagles are favourites for the 2021 Afcon.

“We have what it takes to win the AFCON because we have a good team. Super Eagles will go all the way in Cameroun to win Nigeria’s fourth Africa Cup of Nations title,” Okoye concluded.
